Book Week 2016 – Our Favourite Books

Some of our favourite books right now……

It’s Book Week in Australia right now and all over schools children are dressing up as book characters. I’m a huge believer in reading to children from a young age so I thought I’d get into the spirit of our first Book Week and share five favourites that the Cheeky Monkey¬†and I are currently enjoying.

Photo Friday: Yoga in Wineglass Bay, Tasmania

On our visit to Wineglass Bay we didn’t just stop at the lookout – we continued down onto the beach. I’m thankful we did. Continue reading “Photo Friday: Yoga in Wineglass Bay, Tasmania”

World Breastfeeding Week 2016

A beautiful connection!

The baby websites I follow are telling me that the first week of August is “World Breastfeeding Week”. In light of that, I thought I’d briefly share a bit about breastfeeding my baby.

12 Things: List Planning for 2016/2017

Birthdays are a time of reflection for me. For looking back and looking ahead. For making plans. This year my birthday will be a fairly quiet one but a very special one as it will be my first birthday as a Mum. Usually I like to go do something but this year I’ve been thinking about making a list again. I had a 30 by 30 list a few years ago but this time I’m going with a “12 Things” list – one thing for each month of the year. Far more realistic for the year ahead.
